of why president obama went to massachusetts and said this obama care is like romney care. one part is it will provide access to preventative care services for a broader group of people and that will bring down health care costs not only for individual households but also for state and the nation. why, then, are republican governors opting out of something that would, in fact, bring down costs? >> one of the things you brought up, you brought up the disparity in terms of coverage among different ethnic groups. there's also a dispar fi in quality of care separate from coverage and that's one of the big challenges with the medicaid program. for example, in new york state, for every dollar a private insurance pays a doctor, medicaid pays 30 cents. that means a lot of people don't get those preventative screenings. when they get diagnosed for cancer on medicaid, you get diagnosed at a more advanced stage for cancer because it wasn't diagnosed earlier because you didn't have access to primary care. >> that's not wrong that medicaid reimburses at something like half to 60% to what medicar

conservative party in the nominating process in his conservative from massachusetts, which is different than being a conservative for texas for example. so he talked about that. the most interesting part was when we got to the 47% comment that everybody knows about it was a crippling moment. i don't think it was a decisive moment in the campaign, but a crippling moment because it crystallized the argument that the obama campaign has been making about him, that he was a wealthy plutocrats who is out of touch with ordinary americans and did not understand the lives of any of the kinds of people george reported on in the unwinding. when we talked about this time i said to him -- he said but i was trying to save the country is polarized. 47% will vote for me in 47% will vote for the president and there's nothing i can do to get them. i said the use of these are people who feel completely dependent and feel government owes them something and they will never take control of their own minds. he said i didn't say that. he jumped up and we were in his home outside of boston. he jumped up and went to

to john fleming of louisiana. mr. fleming: i thank the gentlelady from massachusetts and thank you for your leadership and also tonight having this great time to come together and talk about subject that i think is increasingly important. with great foresight and clarity the founding fathers enshrined religious liberty as our first amendment right, stating that congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or impeding the free inters thereof. this is an important constitutional right that is for every american, including service members who defend those very liberties with their own lives. the ability to live one's life informed by one's faith is not just a protected constitutional right. it's also essential for the individual well being of our soldiers and the uniquely stressful -- in the uniquely stressful military environment, congress must ensure our men and women in uniform can access religious support and practice their faith without risking career reprisals. service members increasingly fear even mention

.i.t professor. heelped put together t massachusetts version of this and the national version. he essentially argued no. if you start messing aund with is and trying to grandfather in some of these folks, you dermine the whole prise of the law. the ole way insurance companies can make iaffordable for somebody w has a pre-existing condition is if they are forcing these younger and healthier pele essentially to pay a ltle bit more. you know, at's the way -- and th goes to the problem the president brought upon himself when they didn't make this clear,here are always winners and sers in any piece of legislation. there is a smallumber of losers in re, if you want to count losing as in having to pay more for your healthnsurance. healthy peop are going to pay more. that was always the intention. that was the only way you uld make the law work if you wanted to bring down the cost for sic people. >> chuck todd in washington on this story. chuck, thanks so much. >>> meantime, we're followin breaking news out of the philippines. here's nbc'sarry smith. >> reporter: good rning. good news ined. a lot of

the country. it has been easy for republicans to fight it. the president points to massachusetts, but that law had huge bipartisan support in the state legislature, making it easy to go back and fix things when they did not work and tinker with it. host: here is a little bit from the president late last week. [video clip] >> those who got cancellation notices do deserve and have received an apology from me. they want whether we can make sure that they are in a better place and that we meet that commitment. by the way, it is important to note that a whole bunch of folks in congress and others who made this statement, they were entirely sincere about it. the fact that you have got this percentage of people who have had this impact, i want them to know that their senator or congressman, they were making representations based on what i told them and what the white house and the administrative staff told them. it is on us. it is something that we intend to fix. host: kyle cheney? guest: the president has been getting an earful from congress, democrats in congress, about the fact that they stuck the

massachusetts, the thousands in your state and millions of private contractors and nonprofit organizations, not the least of which, one of my favorites, the catholic church, who delivers so many social services to the people of our state and nation. it's very hard for anyone to plan anything when the federal budget is in such disarray. if there's anyone that can figure this out, it's senator mikulski. so as one of our subcommittee chairs, i want to be here to support her work. i'm the chair of the homeland security committee and just add my voice to how important it is for us over these next few weeks to get a budget resolution done. senator murray has passed a budget on this side. we're finally, after the recklessness of a government shutdown, finally everyone has come to our senses and we're now in conference, budget committee. we've got to get that budget number done. so that once we agree on what the topline spending is, or the budget for the country, we can then go about building the 14 bills that actually run the department of defense, the department of homeland security, department

for otis air force base in massachusetts. we psalm then they are going to their home state to join their mother and father and other members of the kennedy family. we also are told that military officers who have the job of arranging state funerals are at the white house now and presumably making the plans. mrs. kennedy is the first president to die in office since the defense department was set up and these arrangements were made. and i think there is no -- there is no set standard ritual to be followed, so to some extent it will have to be made up, presumably the army will be in charge of the arrangements as it always has been, and it has, of course, casons and remonies at fort myer, virginia, which is nearby. that is about all we have here at the moment. richard of nbc news is at the white house, as is our mobile unit with live pictures, so we'll switch there and see what's happening. richard? >> the american flag atop the washington has been lowered to half-staff t. came down short after word there was confirmation of the president's death in dallas. in the white house itself,

in the berkshires, massachusetts. anything can be a currency. in the digital realm, there is nothing stopping us from having -- i am holding my hand up like this all the time because i am picturing on your mobile phone what is essentially a rainbow of different currency options to make payments at a merchant or online, depending on which which transaction, makes the most sense for you as a consumer in that particular moment. host: i was just thinking, that sounds very complicated. that future of deciding which currency to use the side -- based on what you are buying. yes and no. 10 years ago my default mode was to picture a cash register. you would be crazy to think that it would be yen, euros, dollars, pesos, etc.. you are going to provide correct change in all of these? convertd you be able to the proper exchange rate in that time and place? yourobile ubiquity in pocket, you have these computers that can do all of this convergence on the fly. present to people the obvious value proposition. an example that i like to use, it sounds cutesy on the surface but it is legitimate, i think, something
